Needless to say I still have a lot to do to get myself ready for the Make It show this weekend.
We’re leaving at about 2.30 pm today…………..supposedly! LOL!
I’ve made several Berry Baskets, which is the product I’ve chosen to demo, and they include a normal-sized basket with handle, a normal-sized basket with a lid, a narrow basket and a double basket.
I’ll be sharing them here over the next three days.
To make today’s card, I used the delicate Circle of Spring Stamp Set.
Unfortunately, I don’t think all my photographs really do the card justice as far as the colour is concerned – the first three aren’t too bad!
I’ve used Soft Sky for the card base with a layer of Whisper White and a top layer of Soft Sky.
The first step was to die cut the aperture in the top layer using the Deco Labels Framelits Dies.
I positioned this over my Whisper White Layer a drew a soft pencil line around the aperture as a guide to where I needed to stamp the wreath.
I stamped the image in the centre of my pencil marks, sprinkled with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it.
I used my markers in Blushing Bride, Soft Sky, Mint Macaroon and Daffodil Delight to colour the wreath.
I think these colours really go well together – like the stamp set, they’re delicate!
I carefully erased the pencil marks and adhered the two layers onto the card base using Tombow.
I stamped the sentiment from the You’re So Lovely Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Lost Lagoon Ink.
Then I die cut it using the Extra Large Oval Punch and adhered it to the top layer using Dimensionals.
Using Soft Sky Ink on Whisper White Cardstock I stamped three flowers from the Petite Petals Stamp Set, six flowers from the Pictogram Stamp Set and two butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp.
Then I used Tombow to adhee them together where shown and onto the card using Tombow.
My final touch was adding Rhinestones to the flowers and butterfly.
Next time I write to you, it’ll be from Farnborough. So until tomorrow, happy crafting.
